Crowdfunder Appeal

Why support Battersea Park Children's Zoo?

The site of Battersea Park Children’s Zoo has been a pillar of the local community for nearly 70 years and now, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and our third forced closure as a result of government restrictions, we are looking to our members, visitors and friends for support.

Our small, family-friendly zoo is nestled in the heart of Battersea Park on London’s south bank. We are funded entirely by our visitors and as a result of our closure, we can no longer rely on those funds to care for the 47 species that live at the zoo and cover our expensive daily running costs. 

We understand that as a nation we are all struggling to adjust to the current situation we are living through. If there is any way you could help us overcome this third lockdown and continue with our conservation and education projects, it would be greatly appreciated as all of the fantastic work our team carries out is under threat.

We are determined to always provide a place where children of all ages and abilities can play, learn and discover. Please use this link to donate to our Crowdfunder to help us continue to provide the highest level of care to our animals. You can also share this post on your own social media to help us with our cause.

From the whole team here at Battersea Park Children’s Zoo and all our animals, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to welcoming you through our gates soon.
